La Scala, like all Italian theaters in this period was strewn with notices on the seats where a spectator cannot sit; only family members can sit next to each other. No one ever enters without having their temperature taken by kind ushers, and no one even dreams of removing their mask during the performance on pain of immediate expulsion from the hall. The terrible virus, which has locked down every sort of theatrical event activity from March to June 2020, continues to circulate among us. However, there were and still are, measures to deal with the virus, and Italians are adhering to them with discipline and rigor. This has made it possible to hold summer festivals, and starting in October, to reopen schools, movie theaters and museums. Performances will continue in November as well.
